I've seen a lot of comments in the last few weeks from people who are looking for a good natural sunscreen this summer. Well, look no further: The new Rocky Mountain Soap Co. SPF 31 Sunscreen ($22) exceeds my expectations of what a 100% natural sunscreen could be and performs just as well as its conventional counterparts. More info about this wonderful new product (and what a natural sunscreen is) after the jump!


Refreshing Our Living Room Decor

A Mt. Pleasant, Vancouver, condo living room mixes eclectic elements—primary colours, warm neutrals, rich textures, mid-century modern and contemporary furniture pieces, handicrafts-inspired pillows—to create a warm, inviting, cozy space.

Most days I'm too busy, broke, and/or lazy to care that much about keeping up with home design trends, and it takes a lot for me to commit to anything decor-wise. After four years of staring at the same blue Moroccan trellis rug in our living room though, I decided it was time for a change. Replacing the rug triggered a few other tweaks that changed the look and feel of our living space.

Bliss Achilles' Heel Spa-Powered Heel Smoother

Whether you're looking to save money or you simply find the ritual relaxing, if you're into DIY pedicures you should definitely consider adding the Bliss Achilles' Heel Spa-Powered Heel Smoother ($49 at Sephora) to your routine. This newly launched beauty tool replicates salon-worthy results in the comfort and privacy of home. What's more, it's oddly satisfying to use and makes the most tedious part of the pedi process much easier. (Adios, pumice stones and elbow grease!)

Savvy Splurge: Charlotte Tilbury Makeup

Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Uptown Girl

I've been putting off writing this review of Charlotte Tilbury makeup (available at Holt Renfrew) since forever because: 1) anything I say will be so superlative it'll sound like an infomercial; and 2) no matter how I tried, my photography skills couldn't seem to do justice to the burgundy-and-rose-gold packaging. Beautiful packaging aside, this line really is as good as everyone says it is. I've been playing around with some tried-and-true favourites ever since meeting Charlotte Tilbury herself at a press preview last winter—and now, I've got a few new launches on my beauty desk as well. This line was long overdue for a blog feature—more details after the jump!
